Over the past 2 years, Discovery Cube’s Ocean Quest has offered middle school and high school students a unique Citizen Science field trip experience, in which they are able to step into the role of a researcher, and collect meaningful scientific data for local environmental organizations. This summer, Ocean Quest is now offering the Citizen Science Experience to the public.
Guests who rent a boat with Newport Beach Boat Rentals are offered the option of taking a complimentary Citizen Science Kit. This kit includes all of the tools and instructions required to collect various types of data in Newport Harbor. The data points guests will collect include water and air temperature, water quality testing, and marine debris observations. Guests will also monitor abundance and diversity of wildlife found in Newport Harbor. Records of this data will be kept and analyzed by Ocean Quest over the coming months and years.
Dates: July 10, 2019 – September 3, 2019
